Known as 'the disciple whom Jesus loved', John was under our Saviour's direct teaching and care for three years. He leant up against Christ's at the last supper, and witnessed the crucifixion. Who better then to write about the love of Jesus than the one who had such first-hand experience of it? In these three epistles, John is passing on the impact of these experiences to people he loves, tenderly encouraging them to see past their failings and focus on the promises available in Christ.
In 1, 2, 3 John: Redemption's Certainty, a volume from the Focus on the Bible series, John Hannah uses thoughtful and practical exposition of the Johannine Epistles to illuminate the simple message of freedom from guilt contained within.

As with all commentaries in the Focus on the Bible series, the introductory matters are largely kept to a minimum and while there is no verse by verse exposition, the section by section approach is still a worthwhile technique. This commentary is also up-to-date and is applicable not only to the laymen but to the pastor as well. That is why I recommend this text to any laymen as a wonderful devotional and to the pastor as a great introduction to the epistles with a lot of application helpful for sermon preparation.
The book works systematically through John's letters. The exposition is punctuated by a series of parentheses - 40 in all - many of which are like mini applicatory sermons. This illustrates the author's paramount concern for relevance to the Christian life. It is clear that the book was written in a prayerful spirit; frequently the author tells us of his prayer for himself and his readers in the light of his exposition. Overall, the book stimulates comfort and hope. This is apt and chimes in with the apostle's own intention in writing. As the author says in the epilogue, there is 'a majestic sweetness' to John's letters 'that leaves the reader amazed and humbled'. What flows through the book, making it a profitable read, is the author's obvious desire that we should all respond with prayerful amazement and humble prayer.
